3. Blue Mountain Vineyards & Cellars, New Tripoli, Pennsylvania, USA
Blue Mountain Vineyards & Cellars is a family-owned Pennsylvania winery in New Tripoli that’s big on tradition, yet not a traditional wine company.

Take a tour of the winery, do a wine & cheese pairing, or a wine & chocolate pairing. As a bonus you will receive a souvenir glass after your tasting!

You can book this winery for special occasions, or attend one of their fun events, such as comedy night or live music. Or visit on one of the days when popular food trucks offer delicious meals. Take home some of their award-winning wines from the shop. This winery is part of Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley wine trail.
